KINETICS® TADTuned Absorber/Diffuser Panel

Tuned Absorber/Diffuser (TAD) Panels combine engineered acoustics and a choice of fabric or vinyl coverings to give you an excellent design solution where more balanced sound absorption and high frequency diffusion are desirable.

The outstanding acoustical performance of this panel is the result of the assembly of a sound absorptive fibrous core covered with a variable impedance laminate. Standard-sized openings in the laminate are sized and spaced to optimize the absorption in low to mid frequencies while creating random higher frequency reflective surfaces between the openings (variable impedance).

TAD allows absorption to be tuned for different frequencies. For increased low frequency absorption, a thicker fibrous core (2 to 4 inches) can be specified. For increased high frequency absorption, the hole size can be changed to 5/8 inch diameter versus the standard 1/2 inch opening.
